In the age of fast internet, texting and emails, letters have become kind of an oddity reserved only to a niche of passionate, nostalgic people who are attracted by the ‘’authentic’’ feel of a physical letter. And together with letters, letterheads have also joined the ranks of dying art forms. But contrary to popular belief, the days of letters and professional letterheads are not quite over, as they are seeing a sudden resurgence in popularity and usage.
If you are planning an event and want to add a smidge of creativity and personality to it, you should consider opting for a well-designed letterhead. But since making one that looks creative is original is not a walk in the park and requires some experience, you might need some help with that. Therefore, we have comprised a short list of templates that will make your letters truly stand out. Here are a few personal templates that will make your even creative.
What is a Letterhead?
In short, a letterhead represents the heading at the top of a letter. It usually contains the name, an address and, in certain formal or business contests, the logo of the company or the corporate design. Some letterheads even contain background patterns for branding purposes.
Even though letterheads are easily replicable through modern technological means, experts continue to use them as a sign of authenticity. In the same vein, you, as a person, can use letterheads as an expression of your own stylistic preferences and personality. In the following entries, we will show you a few templates that will help you make your event more creative and unique.

Example 1 – Wedding Personal Letterhead Template
Even today, when you can invite everybody to your event in a few seconds by simply sending a mass text, it is still customary to send each of your potential guests a physical wedding invitation. Usually, the bride and groom are not pressured to put too much effort into the design of the invitation, as most people do not expect anything more than a piece of paper with their names written on them.
But if sending out tens, or even hundreds of physical wedding invitations is still the norm, why should you not strive to make it look as best as possible? Instead of sending a regular invitation, you could send a carefully written letter, accompanied by a unique, elegant letterhead. And, if you take the time to add in as many personal details as you can, the better — your potential guests will be impressed by the amount of effort you have put into it when most people would have resorted to just adding the names of the guests and a few words.
